Jaguars' GM pick stays in Baltimore

JACKSONVILLE -- The Jaguars have ended discussions with Phil Savage about becoming the team's general manager, a team spokesman said Saturday.

Team owner Wayne Weaver met with Savage on Friday and Saturday, but the sides could not reach an agreement, Jaguars spokesman Dan Edwards said. Edwards said Weaver did not specify what prevented Weaver from hiring Savage, director of college scouting for the Ravens.

Savage and new Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio were with the Ravens from 1999-2001, and Savage strongly endorsed Del Rio for the Jacksonville job during an interview with Weaver a week ago.

Weaver also has spoken with three other candidates about becoming the team's personnel director, including James Harris, Baltimore's pro personnel director; Tom Modrak, Buffalo's football operations director; and Rick Reiprish, Jacksonville's director of player personnel for pro and college scouting.

BEARS: It looks as though Chris Chandler's run as in Chicago may be over. Bears general manager Jerry Angelo said that "we're not counting on any of our quarterbacks for the '03 season," meaning Chandler, Jim Miller and Henry Burris. "They've all had major durability concerns, and we'd be foolish to think we can count on them."

Chandler signed with the Bears during the offseason after being released by the Falcons. He started seven games but took a beating behind a depleted offensive line.

STEELERS: Running back Jerome Bettis, who has said he wants to end his career as a Steeler, may not return next season.

Bettis, 30, ran for 666 yards this season, the second-worst total of his 10 seasons. He is 10th on the all-time rushing list, but he missed three games with a knee injury and gave way to Amos Zereoue in the playoffs. Bettis will have knee surgery Jan.27.
